Applying for Residence Hall (RH) Overnight Parking Permits

Applying for an RH Permit reserves an overnight parking space and there is no obligation to purchase a permit if you change your mind about bringing a vehicle to campus.

  • Complete and submit the Residence Hall Parking Application along with your proof of housing contract to prktrans@berkeley.edu.
  • An acceptable proof of housing contract must include the residence name and contract dates in the form of an e-mail confirmation, screenshot from your student portal, or other equivalent documentation.
  • If you do not have a local address, please enter the address where you are currently residing, but be sure to enter your residence hall or apartment assignment where indicated.
Eligibility:

"RH" permits are only available for purchase by residents of the Residential Halls, Apartments, and Affiliated Properties specified on the right.  A valid Cal Housing contract for the current academic year will be required to be submitted prior to completing the purchase.  For students not eligible to purchase the Residence Hall ("RH") permit, overnight parking may be available at the Stadium Parking Garage (2175 Gayley Rd, 510-704-2176, pete.dickinson@abm.com), City of Berkeley Parking Garages and Lots, or Craigslist.  (Our office does not maintain a list of off-campus parking providers, but a web search for "Berkeley Monthly Parking" will yield results for such providers.)

  • Ellsworth Structure (19 spaces)
  • Haste/Channing Garage (36 spaces)
